Village History 1

Email: Village History Leader

Date and time of meetings The date and time are chosen by the two team leaders for that month

Venue Meeting place is at the village for that month, all Information is done via email or during a village tour.

How it works We work in pairs, they research the village and then present their findings to the rest of the group during the tour of the village. The team will contact the rest of the group with a time and meeting place. We try and meet at a pub or café for coffee. The team then conduct the tour finishing at the pub for lunch. The café and pub are pre-booked by the team. Group members have to tell them they will be attending, whether they need a lift and if they wish to stay for lunch, so this can be organised.

Level of knowledge or skills required None, just a love of local history and able to do some research via computer, library and visiting the village.
